Smith Corners United Methodist Church offered a pancake, sausage and egg breakfast Jan. 11.
“It’s open to anyone,” said Pat Kendig, coordinator. “It’s $6 for all you can eat.”
For children 10 and under, the cost is $3. Proceeds from this event will benefit the worldwide mission projects of the Methodist Church.
“If only one church was trying to do a project you’d only have a little bit,” said Gary Reel, church member. “But when every Methodist church in the state of Ohio contributes to national it becomes a major punch. So we’re just doing our share this way.”
Church members help out with the event. Frank Newbery cooked eggs, Warren Hutchinson flipped pancakes and Priscilla Lelesch acted as cashier. Newbery and Hutchinson said it’s fun to help out.
Friends Oliver Conn, Dorothy Statler, Allen Statler and Nello Fani attended the event.
They enjoyed their platefuls of eggs, pancakes and sausage.
The church, located at 3000 S. Canfield Niles Road in Austintown, offers the breakfast on the second Saturday of every month.
